The word Supermodel was coined to describe the cream of the modelling crop. The icons of the runway and the masters of the catwalk.
The 90s were definitely the decade of the supermodel with the most iconic models of our time becoming households names like models had ever done before.
Over two decades later, here are five icons who are still every bit as glamorous as there were more than 20 years ago.
Naomi Cambell (50)
With a walk mentioned by Queen B herself in Destiney’s child hit Freakem Dress, Naomi Cambel and her walk are as iconic now as they were in 1986 when the model, actress and businesswoman was discovered at the age of 15.
Cindy Crawford (54)
You can’t think vintage Pepsi and not think of Cindy Crawford. Like many 90s superstars, her status was cemented forever by an iconic Vogue cover.
Stepping back from the limelight a little, Cindy Crawford is now her daughter Kaia Gerber’s biggest fan.
Linda Evangelista (55)
Linda Evangelista, maple syrup and ham are three of the best things to ever come out of Canada.
The Canadian supermodel had a relatively short modelling career(15 years between 1983 and 1998), but made a huge impact on the fashion and beauty industry with her naturally raised eyebrows and bright eyes.
Claudia Schiffer (49)
German- American supermodel Claudia Schiffer’s blonde hair and wide blue eyes won her instant fame in the late 80s.
She became the face of Chanel and over 500 magazine covers later she continues to work and with the biggest names in fashion.
Kate Moss (46)
Kate Moss worked hard and partied even harder. She was the quintessential 90s bad girl and brought the ills of the modelling openly struggling with addiction and the unhealthy lifestyle that comes with the being an IT girl including living by the mantra; “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels”.
Years later, Kate Moss is an actress, model, mother and beacon of hope for women struggling with addiction.
Valentino has announced its first-ever make-up line which will launch in the UK on May 31.
Naomi Osaka is set to launch KINLÒ, a skincare brand dedicated to protecting people with darker skin tones.
